Quiet Blog Carnival - Anyone Out There?

Because of my own strange set of medical issues, I am the first to tell you I didn't nurse the Blog Carnival the way I should have/could have. And today is the Reveal Day.

I haven't poked around a lot, so am not sure what else is out there, but a kind soul let me know about this important piece.

"Are scholarships for non-white midwifery students anti-white racism?"

"The worst part about this is that it isn't like a scholarship "buys away" racism.  It goes a very small distance towards alleviating a tremendous body of counter forces that I've not done much justice to describe.  A small, pitiful distance. I suspect that a small, pitiful distance is as far as we'll ever get."

And a couple of days early, The Unnecesarean published "Racism and Low Birth Weight 101"; a lively discussion has continued in the comments. Included in the piece is a slideshow that begins:

"African American infants are more than two times likely to die during the first year of life than white infants. Why is there such a disparity?"

I'd love to add more information, pieces from now or before. Feel free to submit. I'll work on my own piece this weekend. Thanks for everyone's patience.

    I feel the collaboration itself is just not the emergent phenomenon, however is inflicting the emergence of something at a better degree?
